This is very sad. According to KCBD, a VOLBEAT fan passed away during the band's show in Lubbock, Texas. This is what happened:
Jubal Colvin (39), was denied entry to the show at the Lonestar Event Center. After being denied entry, he allegedly jumped a fence and entered the premises. As a result, some security guards attempted to remove him from the venue, but he ran away and ended up in a restricted area that was fenced off. According to Polica, he then fell approximately 20 feet from the hillside and struck his head on the concrete covered ground.
First responders gave Colvin CPR on the scene, and he was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Wes Nessman of FMX, which promoted the concert, said that Colvin "appeared to be drunk or had been drinking and was stopped at security for having a knife. At some point he got agitated and threw the knife at security and started running. He was told to stop several times by security and Police. He ran past several fences and barricades before either running off the roof or attempting to jump roof to roof.
"This was on a side of the property that is NEVER used and hasn't been used in about six years. This man was running from officials in a clearly off limits area."

Our condolences go out to Colvin's family and friends.
